  • treat all members of the school community with respect and courtesy
  • acknowledge and affirm success in individual and School achievement.

Conduct at Meetings

The regular Parents and Friends Association meeting is an opportunity for community members to contribute to discussions on issues and to take decisions that will have a positive impact on the school community.

To ensure this is carried out effectively, community members agree to:

  • conduct activities in accordance with the Constitution of the P&F Association
  • participate in P&F Association meetings and other community activities in a constructive manner and respect the views of others
  • acknowledge that the decisions taken and actions proposed at the P&F Association meetings are representative of the majority of the school community

  • support the President and members of the P&F Executive when they are required to make decisions on behalf of all parents in the school community
  • use appropriate conduct when participating in meeting discussions and promote positive relationships among community members.

This code was adopted by the members of the P&F Association of Our Lady of the Rosary School on 13 September 2004.
